Actually, not a lot of changes had to be made for the many culinary options of the casually upscale Westfield Woodland to transition from dining in the Before Times to dining now, simply because so many of the restaurants — almost all, in fact — offered outdoor tables before the plague descended upon us. And though indoor eating isn’t possible for the foreseeable future, as long as the weather continues to be summery, sitting on the mall, watching local trendies and high-steppers march about on ...

Whicker: Tiz the Law keeps giving orders, runs away with Travers Stakes

Uncle Chuck, the latest to emerge from Bob Baffert’s speed factory, put together a solid mile at the Travers Stakes on Saturday. However, the race was scheduled for a mile and a quarter. By the time it dawned on Uncle Chuck, Tiz the Law demonstrated why it’s foolish to put a quarter, or a dime, on anybody else’s chances to win the Kentucky Derby. As Luis Saez desperately whipped Uncle Chuck like Keith Moon whacking the drums on “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” Manny Franco looked so comfortable that yo...

Whicker: Jockey Mike Smith makes some noise at quiet Santa Anita

Arrogate, 7, died on Tuesday, which was too early. He was born too early, too. This 2020 Triple Crown schedule would be Arrogate’s cup of oats. The Belmont Stakes on June 20, the Kentucky Derby on Labor Day weekend and the Preakness in October…that would have dovetailed with the thunder that Arrogate produced in late 2016 and early 2017. “I wish I had the words to describe what it felt like when he got rolling,” said Mike Smith, Arrogate’s pilot in those days, fighting the same empty feeling tha...
